game release date for PS2:
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 is the next installment of a popular series of combat games, but it also contains some elements characteristic for adventures and Japanese RPGs. The whole is naturally based on anime by Masashi Kishimoto.
This product is the second title in the Ultimate Ninja series, which refers to a newer version of the adventures of the famous young man, namely the creation entitled Naruto Shippuden. Naruto is already 15 years old, and the plot tells the story of the events that took place after his return to Konoha and connected with saving Sasuka. The main character has to face powerful enemies once again, but with the help of friends and the newly known attacks of a ninja warrior.
In this fifth installment of the cycle, most of the changes were made in terms of increasing the attractiveness of Master Mode. This means that we can count not only on a more interesting plot, but also on numerous improvements in the actual gameplay. Naturo can now take advantage of new fighting styles, previously unknown skills, as well as various upgrades to become stronger or more robust. The possibility of choosing a helper is also a big curiosity. The advantages of this solution are the simplification of the course of fights and the possibility of leading out combined attacks.
The second most important component of the game is still Versus Mode, whose construction resembles classic battles. Here we can choose between seventy characters, and the next fights are being fought in one of the 24 arenas. Additional attractions of the game can also include visits to the virtual shop and numerous bonuses, to which we gradually gain access.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja 5 presents a similar level of performance to the fourth installment of the cycle, although some changes have been made in the animation of movements visible on the character's screen. The graphics have been maintained in a specific style for the whole Naruto series.
